Medical City Arlington has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval® for Total Hip and Knee Replacement Certification by demonstrating continuous compliance with the commission's performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a healthcare organization's commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
The certification is a collaboration with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. It focuses on the patient's journey from orthopedic consultation to the hospital admission, rehabilitation activities and follow-up visit with the orthopedic surgeon.
"Patients who undergo hip and knee replacement surgeries at Medical City Arlington can be assured of exceptional clinical quality," said Keith Zimmerman. "Achieving Joint Commission certification demonstrates that our dedicated team of clinicians is committed to the highest level of safety and patient care in every action, every time."
Certification is a rigorous and voluntary process. Joint Commission standards are developed in consultation with healthcare experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The reviewers also conduct onsite observations and interviews as part of the process.
